Yes We (Still) Can by Dan Pfeiffer
The mere fact that I was very excited to hear Dan Pfeiffer was going to write this book and I preordered tells you just about everything you need to know about my political views. You’ve been warned-but this post is about the book, not me.
Dan Pfeiffer is the former White House Communication Director for the Obama administration and a current cohost of the Pod Save America podcast. Yes We (Still) Can is his take on how politics have changed beginning with the Obama administration and the effect that social media and television networks have had on the American public. Pfeiffer is an engaging speaker and an equally engaging writer.
Pfeiffer provides insights into his early political career working on senate campaigns all the way up to his days after the White House. One thing that I really respected about the book is it’s honesty. There is no shying away from failure. When he, or the someone on the staff, made a mistake-he gives it as much weight and analysis as any high point.
I really enjoyed the book-it’s well written and accessible and I’ve listened to Pfeiffer on Pod Save America enough that I heard his voice in my head the whole time.
Yes We (Still) Can by Dan Pfeiffer is available now.
